I decided to make a card for a "tween" girl. You know, that age when you're not a child any longer but you haven't quite made it into the teens? Well, I know a number of them and they love glitz and glamour. The card I made has that in spades.
I began with my second largest Oval Framelit and cut a folded piece of Blushing Bride cardstock so that the top remained hinged. Then I cut a 1 1/2" piece of Basic Black cardstock and began cutting that with my Fringe Scissors. Once I had cut the entire length (about 4"), I snipped the piece in half and then shaped the fringe so that one end had longer fringes than the other. Then I used my Bone Folder to curl the fringe and finally used my Tombo glue to adhere the shaped fringe in a curve on each half of the oval. Once that was dry I set small rhinestones along the top of the "lashes".
That was okay but something was lacking---hair. So I took another single oval cut with the same framelit from Hello Honey cardstock. Along one length I used the Fringe Scissors and made bangs. I curled them slightly with my Bone Folder and then tied a "hairband" of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon in a bow and adhered that to the "hair". Finally I glued the blonde hair onto the pink face.
The final touch is the sentiment from the Million & One stamp set, stamped in Black Memento ink across the top of the hair.
